We stayed here for one night on our way up to Scotland and we were pleasantly surprised at how good the hotel is. We have driven past this hotel many times on our trips North and always thought that it looked pretty uninspiring but the recent refurbishment has produced a really good option to break the long journey. We had... More

When we stayed there in 2008 it was the Scotch Corner Hotel. At that time the service was up to mark and I am sure it has improved further since the Name change. Meals were tasty. I hope to visit some time again to enjoy the surrounding beauty.

This hotel is great if you are just wanting a standard room, no frills. It is clean, cheap and the full English breakfast was delicious. I give it five stars as they allowed us to check in considerably early and the staff were very catering to all our needs.

Stayed here a couple of times and have always been impressed with the standard of the room. All times our room has been too hot even with no heating on, the bathrooms have been well decorated and clean in each of the rooms we've stayed in. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice and help yourself, staff were friendly... More

I remember staying here before the Holiday Inn took it over and it was a bit grubby and lacking investment. Now it's spotless, well run and an ideal place to stay if you're working in the area. The restaurant is fine for my tastes and there's an amazing pub/restaurant across the roundabout in Middleton Tyas called the Shoulder of Mutton.

To clarify, from the off, i'm a platinum priority club member so i stay in a lot of Holiday Inns. I'll be brief.... I don't like this Holiday Inn. The rooms, although superficially nice, are freezing cold, even in the middle of summer. I turned the 'aircon' up to 30 deg C to try and get a bit of warm... More
